SCSI is a class of knowledge on its own - drive numbering etc etc - Have you set up the drive cable with the termination block at the end ??.
There are plenty of recovery programs around ( if you have a failing drive or deleted filed etc) but first you have to get the drive 'recognised' by the system.

Try also to Google on "SCSI setup" solutions and try www.youtube.com also. There maybe a video on how to set the drive up, there.

XP can't recognize SCSI Ultra320 hard Drive


First, determine if your "motherboard" will support a SCSI hard drive interface. The type of SCSI drives that are available are Wide Ultra SCSI (40MB/sec), Wide Ultra 2 SCSI (80MB/sec), Ultra 160 SCSI (160MB/sec) and Ultra 320 SCSI (320MB/sec). Today's standard for SCSI drives is the SCA SCSI which has an 80 pin female cable to drive information from the drive to the system board.

Set the jumpers. The drive should have jumpers on it that were set by the manufacturer. Setting the jumpers allows the drive to be recognized by your computer's hardware. If the jumpers have not been set, you will need to set the jumper of the primary drive to "Master," and if you are installing a secondary drive, the jumpers would be set to "Slave." The master drive is the drive that the computer boots to first when it starts up. The jumpers are pins located on the block or end of the hard drive.Resetting the BIOS default should make the system recognize the drive. Or Press F6 to install third-party SCSI drivers.

I was running 2 scsi drives in a raid 0. One drive failed, how can i retrieve the files off the the still working drive, and can i?


Hi there, Sorry to break the bad news, but when one hard drive fails in a RAID 0 configuration, all data is lost. Your only chance is to take it to a professional data recovery center, where you could be charged hundreds, or thousands of dollars for a data restore. Seagate will do these recoveries for you. RAID 0 has no redundancy, unfortunately. Sorry about that, Alex

I could not set the jumper ID as 3 in Seagate 73 GB model of Hard drive.It has 12 pins at the back of Hard drive.


You need a jumper on ID pin sets 1 and 2 (as if you were setting it for both ID 1 and ID 2)
These pin sets work like binary, so set 1 for ID1, set 2 for ID 2, and sets 1 & 2 for ID 3. In this mannar, with just the 4 sets of pins, you can have IDs from 0 to 15 (no jumpers to all 4 jumpered..1+2+4+8=15)

* * * *
1234 set number
1248 binary ID (additive)

If you need further explanation, please post a reply here.

I am trying to install window xp2 in my system and having seagate 7200.10 barracuda 160 gb but setup works only upto 27% and a problem occer that disk may be damage or check that SCSI is terminated.


Hi,
I've got bad news for you . Your hard drive is damaged for sure and you will need to replace it . It's totaly impossible to install a OS on a damaged drive and at least not recommended .
To retreive data , you will need to disconnect the drive and read it in a external box from a healthy computer .
The chance that the issue would be due to a defect SCSI connection is extremely small .
Regards .

Cant install drivers


Read the manual that came with the harddrive - they usually mention setting your BIOS to properly install this type. Then check the BIOS to see if it has detected the harddrive. If it didn't, then you may have a cable issue.

How can i onnect my ext. hard drive with a scsi connector to my computer?


I'm not sure you can get a USB SCSI hard drive adapter case.
I've got an Adaptec SCSI to USB adapter cable and found ot very useful.
It is not as handy as a USB hard drive case bur it works.
